ProPresenter is my favorite option as presentation software for churches. As a worship leader for over 10 years and the owner of a business that services churches, I have worked extensively with them in the area of media development.
When looking at presentation software, the biggest concern for churches should always be the ease of use for their staff and volunteers. ProPresenter looks great visually and has a format where you can easily setup a presentation for Sunday morning service so that whomever may be running the show can easily click through from slide to slide during the service. You can import videos and pictures into ProPresenter and use them whenever you would like or you can leave them in a folder on the computer and drag and drop files as you need them. The software can manage audio files, DVD's, import powerpoint presentations easily, and more. ProPresenter also works very well with SongSelect from CCLI and I always strongly suggest to our customers that they pay their CCLI licensing fee and utilize SongSelect. When SongSelect and ProPresenter are linked together, it can save a lot of time setting up presentation slides because you can easily import lyrics using the SongSelect button at the top of the main page. Once the lyrics are imported you can edit them to put more or less words on each slide, change fonts, size, color, or many other elements.
Other features include...
The last feature that I will mention is what is called a "rear confidence monitor." You setup your system to use this feature on a back screen for your on-stage team to use. It displays a basic image, black words on a white screen or the opposite so that your team can easily see them from the stage. It shows the next slide so that the team can see the lyrics before they appear to the congregation, and it will display messages for the team onstage as well as a few other features.
See the full list of features on the ProPresenter website HERE. A single license is $399 and a site license is $799. A single license allows you to put the software on two computers, but only use the software in one location at a time, you cannot use both at the same time. Call us for a quote on an entire setup including an Imac, Mac mini, or Mac laptop system pre-loaded with the software.
